Phyllis was a woman of many talents and passions. She was a graduate of Toni and Guy Hairdressing Academy, where she honed her skills and developed a keen eye for beauty.

Her work was her ministry and she invested into others with gentleness and grace.

Her leadership role in entertainment at Silver Dollar City was another avenue for her to spread faith and joy. She led with a servants heart. She had a knack for making people feel seen and included, a trait that made her a beloved figure in her community.

Phyllis was a woman of many interests, each of which added a unique color to the vibrant tapestry of her life.

A devoted mother to her children, John David Schulz (Katie Leigh) and Jessica Lynn Cable (James Everett). Her grandchildren, Cade James Cable, Alea Trinity Cable, Jackson Dean Schulz, Autumn Jane Schulz, and Micah John Schulz, were true blessings, and she cherished every moment spent with them. She was a beloved sister to Joyce Elmira Smith and the late Dale Wayne Neill. She was the proud daughter of the late Burl Louis Neill and Mary Eve Neill.

Phyllis's life was a symphony of love, joy, and peace. She faced every challenge with grace and perseverance, and she lived every moment with unshakable faith. Her legacy is not just in the lives she touched, but in the wisdom she leaves us: to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with your God. (Micah 6:8)

Phyllis Mary Schulz Neill, a woman of faith, a woman of passion, a woman of grace. Her spirit may be with the Father, but her legacy and her love will continue to shine brightly in the hearts of those who knew and loved her. Her life was dedicated to following her Savior, interceding in prayer, and seeking His will. She will be deeply missed, but we find comfort in the seeds of faith that she sowed in each one of us.
